If you aren't aware, Crossroads Church (Cincinnati) is doing a series called Free* (as in Freedom). Check it out HERE. You can even download the booklet that you are supposed to be working in each week. This journey is about releasing the attachments you have with various things in your life and then attaching yourself to Jesus so that you can be free and soar! Last night I watched the first three weeks (yeah, I'm catching up). It wasn't until week three, when I was really inspired. He talked about the enemy. (You will note that I will not talk about him and capitalize things because he does not deserve such respect.) I just kept hearing myself confirming over and over in my head that the ending to my second marriage was because the enemy got to my husband. We were at a low point in our marriage and it was the perfect time for him to sneak fear and doubt in and tear it apart. he caused my husband to be with another woman and to pretty much lose all affection for me. I realized from the beginning that this was not my husband because it was completely out of his character. Had I not started going to Alpha a very short time before this started coming out, I don't think I would have been open to see it. I feel that personally my life is so much better now with Jesus ... even if it did mean losing the one worldly man I loved the most. I have much calm over it now and now that I see the whole situation, I have no regrets about it. Could have I done things better or differently? Sure, but that's not what happened and fretting about it won't make it better. You know what will? God. He will give back 10 fold that which the enemy has taken and I have faith that my Father will pull through for me. Because I am ROYALTY. I am DESTINY. I have been SET FREE. and I'M GONNA SHAPE HISTORY.
I also found out today that my church is buying our building!!! I don't know how it happened. I don't really care. I know that God wants us to be there and He showed us the way. I am so excited to be a part of the VWS family in this developing time!
